The 2014–15 ISU Junior Grand Prix was the 18th season of a series of junior international competitions organized by the International Skating Union. It was the junior-level complement to the 2014–15 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. At each event, skaters also earned points toward qualifying for the final. The top six skaters or teams from each discipline met at the 2014–15 Junior Grand Prix Final, held together with the senior final.

Qualifying[edit]

Skaters who had reached the age of 13 before July 1, 2014 but had not turned 19 (singles and females of the other two disciplines) or 21 (male pair skaters and ice dancers) were eligible to compete on the junior circuit. Unlike the senior Grand Prix, skaters for the JGP are not seeded by the ISU. The number of entries allotted to each ISU member federation was determined by their skaters' placements in each discipline at the previous season's Junior World Championships.

JGP Final qualification standings[edit]

Qualification rules[edit]

At each event, skaters earn points toward qualification for the Junior Grand Prix Final. Following the 7th event, the top six highest scoring skaters advance to the Final. The points earned per placement are as follows:

Placement Points (Singles/Dance) Points (Pairs)
1st 15 15
2nd 13 13
3rd 11 11
4th 9 9
5th 7 7
6th 5 5
7th 4 4
8th 3 3
9th 2
10th 1

There are seven tie-breakers in cases of a tie in overall points:

  1. Highest placement at an event. If a skater placed 1st and 3rd, the tiebreaker is the 1st place, and that beats a skater who placed 2nd in both events.
  2. Highest combined total scores in both events. If a skater earned 200 points at one event and 250 at a second, that skater would win in the second tie-break over a skater who earned 200 points at one event and 150 at another.
  3. Participated in two events.
  4. Highest combined scores in the free skating/free dancing portion of both events.
  5. Highest individual score in the free skating/free dancing portion from one event.
  6. Highest combined scores in the short program/short dance of both events.
  7. Highest number of total participants at the events.

If there is still a tie, it is considered unbreakable and the tied skaters all advance to the Junior Grand Prix Final.
